PROG : Appoints Two New Independent Directors to Board

09/09/2021 | 04:32pm EDT

New board members bring deep digital marketing insight and experience using data and technology to drive meaningful consumer engagement and growth

PROG Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:PRG), the fintech holding company for Progressive Leasing, a leading provider of e-commerce, app-based, and in-store lease-to-own purchase options, Vive Financial, a provider of omnichannel second-look revolving credit products, and Four Technologies, a provider of buy now, pay later technologies, has appointed Caroline Sheu and Ray Martinez to its Board of Directors.

“Caroline and Ray are recognized leaders who have built large digital brands based on strong consumer loyalty and engagement and their collective experiences will be a welcome and valuable addition to our Board,” said Ray Robinson, Chairman of PROG Holdings.

“We’re pleased to welcome Caroline and Ray as new independent directors,” said Steve Michaels, PROG Holdings’ President and Chief Executive Officer. “Their passion for building meaningful consumer experiences, particularly by harnessing data and technology to accelerate growth across a number of different digital channels, will be a tremendous asset as we continue to execute on our plan of creating value and long-term growth.”

With the addition of Ms. Sheu and Mr. Martinez, PROG Holdings has added three new independent directors to its Board in 2021, each of whom possesses significant experience integrating and growing digital capabilities to drive engagement and expansion through connected and personalized consumer experiences. The Company believes these skillsets are highly relevant as it continues to grow its share of the non-prime financial consumer market and expand into new products and services.

The Board’s Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee engaged executive search firm Spencer Stuart to assist with the nationwide search for potential director candidates.
